Have you ever wondered why so many gin distilleries set up in London, even to this day? Or why some gin made in other countries is known as London Dry Gin? This spirited book will reveal why London has been so important to gin makers for centuries and why the popular drink even sparked a riot. Parliament thought gin was so central to the nation s problems with alcohol and vice that it passed five different Acts. Even now, you are not allowed to make you own gin but is mother s ruin really so bad for you? Did you know, for example, that it can help both arthritis and period pain? Or that the term Dutch courage was originated because soldiers would drink what was then known as Dutch gin to keep warm? This book isn t just a history of gin in London and the London style of gin but contains often startling facts about the recently revived favourite. Gordon might be out of favour but other London gins are proving a tonic to the drinks market.Biografía del autor:
